You only get away with pulling that off because you're defending champ.

Sweet, got everyone's picks in this time. Of course we'll see about 5-10 guys drop out each round.

Good luck!

No one has for certain lost any points yet. We'll see if that changes with tonight's games (someone picked a winner in 4 games for each of the 5 series that haven't started yet).

NSH beats NJD in 6 @ SCF (The two teams I'll be cheering for)
Well this is going well...

At least Capitals still have a chance to win 4-2 and Hawks in 7.

This is why I didn't submit a prediction. The playoffs are too unpredictable!

So do we get to re-guess our finals pick for half points before the 2nd round?

Nope, which is too bad because my pick's dead.

Well then put that down as a possible change for next years game. If your cup pick dies at any time, you can re-pick for the next rounds point value, except if the next round is the cup finals.

First round: Full points
Second Round: Half points
Conference Finals: Quarter points
Cup Finals: No points.

Yup, me too. My heart told me to pick the Flyers and Predators, but my head told me to pick the Penguins and Red Wings. TBH, I'm pretty happy I was wrong.

Little bit better than Avder so far.

WEST
(1) Vancouver vs. (8) Los Angeles - LA in 7 (Lou goes headcase right away and LA's scoring depth wakes up)

I at least called the winner, and I was pretty much right with my secondaries.

(2) St. Louis vs. (7) San Jose - Blues in 6 (SJ's scoring depth gets stifled early and often, Jumbo goes Pt/G and still gets called a no-show)

Called this one pretty well, if I do say so myself. Jumbo DID go pt/g, though I haven't heard anyone call him out yet. And what was that about SJ's (completely non-existent) scoring depth? I think I'm going to hang my hat on this pick all playoffs long.

(3) Phoenix vs. (6) Chicago - Phoenix in 7 (if Toews doesn't come back, I've got no faith in Chicago's goaltending even if he does)


I'm on track with this one. Chicago's goaltending has been pretty damn terrible.

(4) Nashville vs. (5) Detroit - Detroit in 5 (Radulov is a non-factor, Nashville struggles to score and Detroit just blows them out of the water)

Swing and a miss...

EAST
(1) New York Rangers vs. (8) Ottawa - Rangers in 6 (Rangers top-9 is scary, the Sens don't have the D to shut down all 3 lines. Rangers D is SUPER underrated as well)

Ottawa has surprised me... I'm going to be bummed out of the Rags get knocked out this early. I really like a lot about the Rags (which hurts me inside)...

(2) Boston vs. (7) Washington - Boston sweeps (Backstrom hasn't had time to get to game speed, and Boston has the lines and home ice to shut down Ovie)


My only predicted sweep, and I've completely underestimated the Caps and/or completely overrated the Bruins.

(3) Florida vs. (6) New Jersey - Jersey in 5 (selfish, I just want their pick)

This one is interesting. I wish I could've seen any of the games so far to get a better handle on what's going on...

(4) Pittsburgh vs. (5) Philadelphia - Philly in 6 (Even without Pronger, Philly is scary good, plus, I hate sh*tsburgh with a passion)

Love it... Just plain LOVE IT!.

SCF: Rangers Vs Blues. Rangers in 6.

I'm not out yet...

Well my picks are all messed up (Pitt and Van in the SCF)

I couldn't be happier about it though.

With the first round about halfway done, scores so far are posted.

Also, I'm terribly pleased by my formula work to do the game on my spreadsheet. Absolutely zero manual tabulation and fairly efficient too.

Let's hear it for Generic User, grN1g, rynryn, and SoH who have managed a combined 0 points so far.

How about another round of applause for the 9 participants whose Stanley Cup predictions include 0 teams who are still in the playoffs.

In retrospect, I have no idea why I didn't like Philly more.

Giroux. Jagr. Hartnell. Voracek. Schenn. Couturier. Talbot. Read. JVR.

There's no team that can match that kind of depth...that's 2010 Blackhawks depth. Maybe better.

It's because of who they played: Crosby, Malkin

If Fleury hadn't been so horrific, Penguins take that series, regardless of how Bryz plays.

I don't put anywhere near all the blame on Fleury. Pittsburgh's defense was absolutely horrendous. They hung Fleury out to dry numerous times.

Jarick, I think there's something wrong with your calculations. With only 4 series complete, shouldn't there be a max of 12 points so far? Adding up Burns4Norris's totals by hand, doesn't he have 9 points instead of 13? Adding up mine, don't I only have 8 points instead of 11?

Absolutely, but he never bailed them out, and allowed a number of softies. With how he played, no amount of defense would have saved him. They had the offense to overcome the poor defensive play, but not enough to overcome the poor goaltending.
